The world of bond funds is generally split along two distinct lines: active and passive. You either own the benchmark or you place your bets with the fund manager who is proactively trying to beat it. Both strategies offer numerous benefits and risks depending on your investment objectives.
With a passive index, you know exactly what you own and that you are going to get every tick of associated price movement from the portfolio. There are strict rules on what securities can be admitted and when they are rebalanced. These funds also offer the lowest costs in terms of direct investment expenses.
